The Seahawks are only America’s 27th favorite team this year, behind all of their NFC West rivals, according to a new Harris Interactive poll. That’s out of 32 teams. Still, that was a slight improvement from last year, when they ranked No. 31, the Puget Sound Business Journal reports.
The lowly Jaguars were the NFL’s least favorite team for the third year in a row.
While the Hawks might be gaining fans, they’re not inspiring a lot of confidence. Fewer than 0.5 percent of respondents picked the Seahawks to go to the Super Bowl this year, compared to 24 percent who think the Green Bay Packers will do it again (Green Bay was the top choice).
The top five teams, according to football fans, were as follows:
Dallas – the Cowboys are America’s Team for the fifth consecutive year.
Pittsburgh (up from No.4)
Green Bay (no change)
